    William Bonney was a Dishwasher

    William Bonney aka Billy the kid was a dishwasher at the Stratford Hotel now known as Shakespeare, New Mexico
    it was a watering hole for the Butterfield Overland Stage to San Francisco and a stop for the pony express.
    It became a ghost town in 1893 when the silver mine closed and the railroad came through to the town of Lordsburg , New Mexico 3 miles away.
    it is now owned by the hill family which gives tours on the weekend.

    In the above tin type photo of Billy it was long thought he was a left handed but the is a mirror image .
    He was ambidextrous, but primarily right-handed. Due to the reverse image of the only known photograph of Billy the Kid, it gave the incorrect impression that he was left-handed because his revolver is positioned on the left side. Someone finally realized the imaged was flipped by looking at the Winchester rifle.

    That kitchen and smithy makes my heart go pitty-pat. I'd move my family out there if it weren't in the desert and far from anyone we know.

    Be careful what you wish for .

    Manny Hough is the last member of the family that owns the ghost town.
    here is a part of a 2010 article .


    Manny has built a small apartment, hoping to find a retired couple to live there, rent-free, and assume the tourism duties and handle the odd jobs around the place. He also wants to give the rights to his property—free of charge—to a nonprofit organization with a track record of preserving and running historic sites like Shakespeare.

    Whoever steps up to the plate will get a remarkable piece of history, still alive and looking something like it did on that day in 1879., the Shakespeare For somebody today, the town just might be a golden egg.

    here is your nearest neighbor.
